    Some Unions Grow Wary of Health Law They Backed

    WSJ Main Headline today

    Labor unions enthusiastically backed the Obama administration’s health-care overhaul when it was up for debate. Now that the law is rolling out, some are turning sour.

    Union leaders say many of the law’s requirements will drive up the costs for their health-care plans and make unionized workers less competitive. Among other things, the law eliminates the caps on medical benefits and prescription drugs used as cost-containment measures in many health-care plans. It also allows children to stay on their parents’ plans until they turn 26.

    Obama Administration Takes Steps to Implement Obamacare Mandate Tax on Americans

    70 percent of those who will pay the Obamacare mandate make less than 400 percent of federal poverty level. Remember, this is a tax, as the poor & lower middle class pay more than their fair share.


    Well, back to the couch.

    Was watching Fox and Friends this morning and they showed the ‘heckler’ video in its entirety. The Sandy Hook dad asked the question about assault rifles to the audience, and I can see why nobody said anything at first because it may have been a retorical question, but then since it appeared it was not, people started to answer.

    MSNBC edited the tape to their advantage. It was only after people who had been there started to tweet and tell what they saw did the truth come out.

    Talk about the pot calling the kettle dirty.

  • Ratboy

    They are SERIOUS!!! They made a video!!!! Holy crap!!!

    Homeland Security has advice for confronting mass murders: scissors

    WASHINGTON — Is your workplace getting shot up by a crazed gunman?

    No problem — just grab a pair of scissors and fight back!

    That’s some of the helpful advice in a new instructional video from the Department of Homeland Security that was posted on the agency’s Web site just a month after the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.

    Oh, Oh theres going to be trouble in ObamaLand this year

    One of my sons just called, they were to get a tax refund this year, IRS isn’t saying when and if they will be issued, so I did some checking

    IRS States Refunds Will Be Delayed and Refund Cycle Chart Discontinued
    “When can I expect to receive my refund?” is the most frequently asked question of a tax preparer. This year your tax preparer may not be able to give you an answer. The IRS is not producing a 2013 IRS e-file refund cycle chart for tax preparers to answer the question. The commonly used chart has been discontinued and Publication 2043 has been dramatically revised due to IRS uncertainty about issuing refunds. The IRS states “In a change from previous filing seasons, taxpayers won’t get an estimated refund date right away.” From a customer service standpoint, this presents a problem in managing your clients expectations.


    They sure won’t delay cashing my check though

  • Coffee Steve


    IRS now tells me to tell my kid he should recieve his refund within 21 days after his efile has been ok’d

    Hope so, he and I know many others really depend on these

    Dominican prostitute: Senator Bob Menendez ‘likes the youngest and newest girls’

    But with him being a dumbocrat can you can you draw a conclusion about a broom and a rug?

    In a little-noticed email published online Wednesday by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), a young Dominican woman wrote nine months ago that she slept with 59-year-old New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez at a series of sex parties organized by Dr. Salomon Melgen, a longtime Menendez campaign donor.

    “That Senator also likes the youngest and newest girls,” the woman wrote on April 21, 2002, according to an English translation provided to The Daily Caller by a native Spanish speaker.

    “In the beginning he seemed so serious, because he never spoke to anyone, but he is just like the others and has just about the same tastes as the doctor, very refined. I think they were taking us more often to get us checked [medically] because of him.”

    6-Year-Old Expelled for Bringing Toy Gun to School

    Sumter, SC – A kindergartner at Alice Drive Elementary in Sumter has been expelled from school for bringing a toy gun to class.

    Naomi McKinney, who’s six-year-old, was expelled on January 7th.

    The problem began when Naomi grabbed her brother’s toy gun to bring in for show and tell.

    “I chose to bring it to school because I thought I could show my friends it because they might like seeing it,” Naomi explains.
